A.D.'s, New York, USA

A.D.'s, New York, USA

Formed: Albany, New York, USA

This intermittently great band from Albany, NY revolved around Jim Furlong (vocals) and Bob Nati (guitars). Their first three singles were good examples of hard, melodic punk, sometimes straying into near-hardcore territory but mainly retaining a poppy edge.

After the third single there was a long lay-off. When Furlong and Nati returned in 1987 with Know Hard Feelings the new lineup included a bassist/keyboardist, T. Rice, and some of the songs on the LP veered into Goth territory.

Jim Furlong: Vocals, Percussion
